      Mission Restore Hope – Raised over $275,000

      Posted on: September 28th, 2020 by brent

      Mission Restore Hope

      Channel 3 News, Cat Country and United Way of West Florida hosted “Mission: Restore Hope:” an effort to help our community recover from Hurricane Sally.

      Our community proudly raised over $275,000 for the United Way of West Florida.  The money will ALL stay local.

      You can still donate:  TEXT 850RELIEF TO 41444



      United Way of West Florida will administer the funds.  The money will support recovery efforts for those who were impacted by Hurricane Sally, including assistance to households, building supplies and materials, and support for underinsured and uninsured individuals.   Funds will remain in the community to support recovery efforts.

      What the United Way of West Florida is doing:

      We are working around the clock to support Escambia and Santa Rosa counties, as we recover TOGETHER from Hurricane Sally.

      United Way of West Florida is here before, during, and after disasters. While there is much work to be done in helping our community recover, your gift of money or time helps families get back in their homes and give our vulnerable community members the care they need. UWWF works with local organizations to thoughtfully build strategies to create resilient communities.



      The most immediate and useful way to support recovery efforts in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties is through financial assistance. This allows relief organizations to purchase and provide the supplies and resources most needed. To donate to UWWF’s Hurricane Relief Fund, text 850RELIEF to 41444.


      You can also support recovery efforts through volunteerism. We have combined our efforts with Be Ready Alliance Coordinating for Emergencies (BRACE) to coordinate volunteers for the impacted areas. If you would like to support those affected by Hurricane Sally, please create a profile through the UWWF online volunteer portal, GET CONNECTED. BRACE will recruit volunteers by using this platform.



      If you or someone you know need assistance, our information and referral hotline, 211 Northwest Florida, is available 24/7 identifying or accessing any support services in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties needed in the aftermath of Hurricane Sally. To access this completely free service, simply dial 211 from any landline or cellphone.

      Please be patient when calling for resources, as the hotline has been inundated by calls.

      You may also visit the links below, based by counties, for the most up-to-date and verified information on basic services – food, water, and shelter.

      Radiothon raises more than $117,000

      Posted on: August 26th, 2020 by brent

      Cat Country Cares

      A total of $117,628 was raised to help sick and injured babies and children throughout our region during the Second Annual Cat Country 98.7 Cares for Kids Radiothon on Aug. 21. All funds raised will support the construction of the Bear Family Foundation Pediatric Oncology Center for Hope, the region’s only pediatric oncology center, at the Studer Family Children’s Hospital at Ascension Sacred Heart. The center is scheduled to open in the spring of 2021.

      Participating radio stations included Cat Country 98.7, News Radio 92.3, ESPN Pensacola 1330AM/99.1FM and Pensacola Playlist 94.5. Throughout the event, listeners heard stories of bravery and inspiration from children and families who have benefited from the care and expertise of the hospital’s highly trained physicians and staff. In addition to pledges from individuals, many businesses called in to make pledges and challenged other businesses to make donations, as well.

      “We are grateful for another successful Radiothon!” said Carol Carlan, President, Ascension Sacred Heart Foundation. “Once again, our community steps up to help our kids. Thank you to all of our sponsors and donors who joined us to make miracles happen every day!”

      Carlan said that a special donation of $75,000 came from the late Peter Fodor of Pensacola, a generous donor and community supporter who designated the gift for Radiothon to support the Children’s Hospital.

      Morning Cohost Brent Lane said, “The mission of the Studer Family Children’s Hospital and the mission of Cat Country 98.7 are the same — to serve our local community. We like to be helpers and are proud to join Ascension Sacred Heart in helping kids and families right here in Cat Country.”

      Wind Creek Hospitality matched funds donated up to $20,000. Other sponsors included Gulf Winds Credit Union.

      The community’s local Children’s Miracle Network hospital, the Studer Family Children’s Hospital at Ascension Sacred Heart is a 126-bed facility that serves as the only children’s hospital in Northwest Florida. The Children’s Hospital offers a wide range of services to meet all of a child’s medical needs, from a pediatric emergency room and neonatal intensive care unit to pediatric intensive care, cancer care, rehabilitation and a medical staff of more than 120 board-certified doctors across 30 pediatric specialties. The Children’s Hospital provides quality, compassionate care to children, regardless of their parents’ ability to pay.
